    The Symphonic Project

    This article describes the development of the Symphonic Project that incorporates Wing Chun movements in contemporary dance.
    ...
    Set to an eclectic mix of Drum and Bass, Swing and Hip Hop music, the piece is an exploration of the application of contemporary and post-modern choreographic devices to Wing Chun techniques and principles. The project was supported by written, practical and visual background information on the History, Principles and Practice of Wing Chun Kuen Kung Fu and Modern to Post-Modern Dance.
    And now the video:

    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    <sheepish> I used to train there... </sheepish>

    Nobody in the video actually trains at the club. A local dance teacher asked to see some forms, and then choreographed a routine for some local teens. It's explained in the accompanying text.

    This is the sort of thing that made me RUN from WC. Well, that, and the fact that many of them tend to be assholes.

    whats even funnier is it looks to me like there just training and i wouldnt have thought anything was different until you told me.
    Eduardo "Why'd you stop."

    Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."
